    Looking for some educated guesses. My daughters hatched these two babies in an incubator on March 21st so they are three weeks and a day. They both hatched within hours of each other. One is very feathered and has a long tail (Buttercup), the other is much fluffier and a little heavier bodied (Peepers). Is the feathered one a girl and the fluffy one a roo???? Our experience with chickens is exactly three weeks and a day so some help from the old timers would be greatly appreciated!!!!![​IMG][​IMG]

    If you could have close up of their faces that would help also. The one in the first picture has a long tail, possibly a cockerel, just a guess, I would need it more up close if you can. [​IMG]

    Way too soon to tell. Wait a few weeks. RIR are sometimes had to sex until they lay or crow.

    If I were to guess, I say two females.
